The spot was packed with family, friends and legends – all out to support one of Portland’s finest producer’s EP release titled 1983.
Hot16 was spinning a mix of hip hop, soul and funk as people browsed through stacks of records at Portland’s 360 Vinyl. Shop owner DJ Kez was busy restocking shelves with copies of the EP as well as taking care of customers buying vinyl and CDs. Conversations were being had, smiles shared and number’s exchanged. It was a family affair!
Producer and MC DaiN hosted the event, gathering everyone’s attention for MC Epp of TxE who kicked things off with performances from his project Chrome Plated Chronicles, verses from TxE projects and his contribution to the 1983 EP “Forever”.
Then Portland legendary MC Vursatyl, 1/3 of the crew Lifesavas performed tracks from his upcoming EP “Crooked Straights” before going into “Turned Away”, the track he rhymes on for the Hot16 project. Check out the visuals below:
So cool to have so many artists showing support here from Portland and Seattle showing the NW hip hop community is alive.
Be sure to pick up your copy of the EP from 360 Vinyl or online from Liquid Beat Records.
